Background

A description of the experience

Truth is born into this world only with pangs and tribulations, and every fresh truth is received unwillingly. To expect the world to receive a new truth, or even an old truth, without challenging it, is to look for one of those miracles which do not occur. (From an interview with A. R. Wallace, published posthumously in 1913)
